    JLWebster, thank you! I obviously can't divulge too much information as we sign sheets to say we won't disclose information but there is nothing out of ordinary in the interview. Prepare as you would for any other physio interview and you will be fine

    That's all I needed to hear really, thank-you. Are you going to accept southampton, or are you waiting on others first?

    Hopefully! One last question sorry.

    What kind of experience do you have in Physiotherapy? Just want to see how my experience weighs up against your own?

    Thanks for all the help!

    I've had 3 different placements at different NHS hospitals, 1 in a private MSK clinic and 1 with an orthopaedic surgeon in which I was able to see physio work with post op patients. Yourself?

    Thank-you. I've worked in a private MSK clinic, 1 year in the NHS as phlebotomist on the wards, currently a full time neurological physio assistant, and have a one week rotational placement in a local hospital coming up.

    Hi mate,
    Hope your applications are going well. Unfortunately, I had my response from Birmingham today that stated they did not want to take my application further. I am extremely disappointed I did not even get to the interview stage as I felt I covered all the necessary requirements. Had voluntary Physio experience, working as Personal Trainer one to one with clients, 3rd year Exercise and Health undergrad, personal statement covered plenty of NHS values. But oh well Ill try again. Sent off applications now to York, Leeds, Man Met and Brighton.

    Fingers crossed and good luck!

    Ahh good stuff mate. Could potentially be on an interview day together then aha. I'm hoping Manchester gets to me ASAP. I thought York would be quite quick to reply as they only consider the first 100 and applications close April 31st. After being rejected from Birmingham I'm a nervous wreck haha

    This is my second year applying. First year I had two interviews with no such luck. With over 300 people applying for 14 places is very competitive. That's why I applied for bsc level too. Yeah you would think that would be the case for York, however I don't think they shut it when the first 100 applicants apply either! Did you apply to York on the day it opened?
    When did you apply for Manchester?
    I ended up getting a job within the NHS to fill the years gap between applying again.

    Oh okay, well good for you on the NHS work they love that! I'd love to get a interview just so if I don't get on a course I'm prepared for next year. Because I haven't even got my classification yet I feel this doesn't help with everyone else having there official degree grade! Where and what did you study at undergrad? And were the interview last year scary or were you surprised you didn't get in?

    I found the interviews alright. Simple questions and I thought I was well prepared as i have numerous placements shadowing within the nhs and private and worked as an injury practitioner. However it's that's competitive I was annoyed I didn't get in but this year I understand why from my current job!
    Also this year will be very competitive as they are cutting NHS funding after this academic intake so loads will be applying.
    I studied sport therapy validated by York St. John run at york college. It's a very hard masters degree to get into that's why I applied bsc level too

    That's crazy, your application already sounds stronger than mine! I've done one 1 month placement in a private hospital, musculoskeletal outpatient clinic. But I'm also a personal trainer which isn't nothing on NHS work but the people skills required I believe make me ready to do physio. I've done exercise and health at undergrad hoping to get a first if my dissertation is good! Hopefully Manchester might get back to me this week.

    Has anyone else heard from UEA yet? I have an interview on June 9th. Also, I have an interview at Teeside, but still waiting to hear back from MMU, Leeds, and York. I got a straight decline from Southampton due to my lack of research so I am very worried about going to the interview and this being the issue. Has everyone just completed a dissertation project as their research?

    I got a rejection from Essex. The reason is that in a personal statement my word count of 544 exceeded their maximum 500.

    Hi, I was offered a funded place so I have not heard anything about fee assessments sorry
    I know they are offering lots of non-funded places this year tho
